The Nebraska secondary took a hit on Friday when the Cornhuskers announced that sophomore safety LeRoy Alexander has been suspended for the entire 2014 season. The team did not give a reason for Alexander's suspension in their official release.
Alexander can still practice with the team and remains on scholarship.
The Toledo, Ohio native found himself in the safety rotation last year and coach Bo Pelini was hoping for the sophomore to become the starter opposite senior Corey Cooper.
Alexander appeared in 13 games last year recording one interception and 28 tackles.
On Thursday, Nebraska also lost another potential starter in the secondary when junior cornerback Charles Jackson went down with a season-ending knee injury.
